Residents’ Events – February 2021

Valentine-Heart

Valentine’s Day in Community Day Services

Date: Thursday, February 11, 2021
Chair: Debbie Conrad

The annual Valentine’s Day party was modified this year due to the pandemic. Activities were introduced in the Community Day Services and then taken back to the cottages to enjoy again over the weekend.

The residents played Valentine Bingo: it wouldn’t be a party without a game of Bingo! They also tossed heart-shaped rings around an adorable blow-up unicorn and assembled a Valentine’s Day craft. Prizes included valentine socks, sparkly red coin purses, heart-shaped notepads, and scented stickers.

Debbie Conrad ordered, sorted, packaged, labeled, and delivered all items for both Valentine’s Day celebrations.

Valentine’s Day in the Cottages

Chair: Debbie Conrad
Volunteers: Tracey DiFalco, Terry Likar and Mary Rieck

Residents continued playing Valentine Bingo and Valentine Unicorn Ring Toss over the Valentine’s Day weekend.

Can you guess the meal? Pizza, salad, and pop, of course! Pizza is a tradition for the Mount St. Joseph Association Valentine’s Day party. Each cottage was supplied with Valentine’s Day tablecloths, paper plates, cups and plasticware.

Tracey DiFalco coordinated the meal, Terry Likar donated delicious valentine cookies, and Mary Rieck organized food for residents with allergies.
